Inspiration

We’re not crying, YOU’RE crying. This love-filled day with pink satin bridesmaids dresses is just the epitome of love wins. Hannah & Stephen cut 160 people from their guest list, leaving just their bridal party and immediate family. But, it couldn’t have been more beautiful! Their reception consisted of sailing down the river, stopping for a picnic and impromptu speeches, complete with dancing to their favourite songs. Hannah looked positively radiate in a lace Pronovias wedding dress, and the day was expertly captured by recommended supplier Benjamin Stuart Photography.

It would be difficult to have a wedding in 2020 that isn't unique! Changing to a small village church with just our bridal party and immediate family was intensely intimate and romantic. I had always wanted a big wedding and even though we had to cut 160 people from our guest list(!) it was still beautiful.

FAVOURITE MOMENT

My favourite moment may sound cliché, but it was when we were stood at the end of the aisle saying our vows to each other. My younger brother had played the piano and sung our favourite hymn while we held hands shaking with nerves. I think the build up with a four month delay to our wedding meant that moment was even more special. We had waited longer, cried more and finally we were getting married. As Stephen said his vows it sunk in that he had promised to love me not just now but forever. It was breathtakingly beautiful.

STYLE

I love weddings with an Italian feel; cathedral veils, lace and romantic flowers. Classic without being stuffy, chic but relaxed. When I walked down the aisle I wanted to feel elegant, pretty and accentuated. My favourite wedding dresses that I had seen were worn by Hailey Baldwin, Kate Moss and Kim Kardashian. Veils thin and blowing in the wind, trailing lace and flattering. We worked in putty nudes with the flowers and my auntie gifted us our floral arch which added a touch of fairytale magic to our church exit as Mr & Mrs.

ADVICE 

Your wedding is incredibly personal. Throughout this pandemic it has sadly also been incredibly painful too. Dreams dashed, hopes lifted and broken again. Be wise when you choose your suppliers, make sure they are nice people so you can just give them a call and have a chat. Ask them any questions you need the answer to, like what they would do if your wedding got cancelled. You have to trust them that they can do what you ask them to do. Lastly, try and relax. Drink bubbles, enjoy getting ready, treasure the day. Get down that aisle!

We love that Hannah & Stephen didn’t let the current pandemic get in the way of their day, ensuring their day was everything they wanted, and a little more.

Sailing down the river made our day. We had six people on one boat and six on another, our very own wedding flotilla. We had buckets of drinks and armfuls of blankets. My dad was spinning around on his boat, with my bridesmaids, reliving his youth as a boat DJ in Cornwall - his name was Electric Orange and he loved to get on the dance floor! It was magic, fun, special. Nothing I would have dreamed of and all I ever wanted.
